So I'm on the new maths specification (edexcel) for first exams in the summer of this year. I'll be taking the exam this year due to doing further maths, so we do an almost accelerated course of maths.
As far as I'm aware, previously you had to like average 90% over some units and get certain grades on certain modules, but its not longer modular so how does it work on the new linear system? is it the same? a separate grade boundary for each paper? a certain mark overall determining grade?
What do I have to get on each paper to get an A/A*? There's 3 papers: 2 of which are core papers, and one combined stats/mechanics paper.
I guess I'm just a little concerned as even the teachers don't know how this works, and exams aren't actually that far away aha

The way the other newly reformed subjects work is you get a mark for each paper and then a comnined mark which refers to the grade boundaries year on year.

It works just like other linear qualifications (e.g. GCSE Maths). All that really matters is your total mark from all the exams as the grade boundaries are set on the total marks.Last edited by Compost; 25-02-2018 at 17:09.
